Crew cab on zr2 frame?

Postby krector88 » Sat Feb 13, 2016 6:01 pm

I have an 02 blue Zr2 with a 6 inch superlift, 2 inch body lift, 35x12.5 with 96,000 miles. I bought her in 2006 and slowly built it into what it is today. I just bought an 02 blue zr5 with a 2 inch body lift, 31x10.5 with 160,000 miles. I'd like to put my quad cab and bed on my Zr2 frame. If anyone already knows what I'm up against, or if anyone has any tips on this matter, I would greatly appreciate any help I could get.

What are your plans? A crew cab and bed on zr2 frame? Or do you want to keep the 6ft bed.

I would like to put my crew cab and the 4.5' bed on the zr2 frame. It would be cool to have a 6' bed with the crew cab but that project seems like it could end up being more than I can handle. But now I'm curious on how hard it would be to extend the frame? I'm open to any suggestions though. Have any ideas or advice for what I'm up against? This all new to me.

There are a couple that have done it. You can look to the Upfitters manual for all the differences in the frame and mounts. I suspect that those who did the swap used the ZR2 fenders and bed for the larger wheel well openings and flares.
You should be able to find some pictures of the trucks around here somewhere.

I'm also considering this. Where is this up fitter manual?

My ZR2 body is rusting away, but the frame is good and only 10k on the drive train. Have a 4-person family.
